The mission of The Mid Mon Valley Transit Authority (MMVTA) is to provide transit services for its member municipalities and help revitalize the Mid Mon Valley. MMVTA provides public transportation service to community riders through repetitive, fixed-schedule routes.
For local riders, exciting things are happening for the Mid Mon Valley Transportation Authority. The pandemic led to a loss of riders traveling to Pittsburgh, according to MMVTA Executive Director Ashley Seman, so now the MMVTA will change its focus to local services.
These local services include the installation of two new shelters in Belle Vernon borough and the city of Monessen. Seman said these two shelters were requested, and due to high traffic and a high frequency of riders getting on and off at these locations, the MMVTA found it beneficial to install them.
The MMVTA wants to make it easier for local riders to use the transportation services. It will also expand local service to Gabe’s Plaza, Speers Industrial Park and a deviated stop at Spartan Health Complex.
Discounts and special services can be available and provide opportunities for qualified MMVTA riders. MMVTA also provides service to riders through Paratransit, comparable transportation service required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), allowing transit to riders with disabilities who are unable to use fixed-route service.
